ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 13th annual U.S. Bank OC Marathon announces the addition of the "Corporate Challenge" to this year's event that spans three races in two days: the Wahoo's OC 5K, the half and the full marathon. The OC Marathon Corporate Challenge is an extraordinary opportunity for businesses to enjoy friendly competition while reaping immeasurable benefits: improved employee fitness, fellowship through fundraising and positive community exposure. Awards for the fittest and most philanthropic teams will be presented. There is no fee to participate.
"Training together for the Corporate Challenge is a great way to promote camaraderie," says OCM Director, Gary Kutscher. Companies can run for one of OCM's 30 official charities or choose their own. "It's one thing to feel good about yourself by finishing a marathon, and it's another knowing you've just raised $2000 for someone in need," Kutscher says. Nearly $5,000,000 has been generated since the first OCM in 2004. This year's goal is set for $1,000,000. (More info at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Attended by some 40,000 active lifestyle consumers, the OCM offers widespread exposure for businesses from hosting a booth at the event's Expo to becoming a title sponsor.
OCMCC award winners will be trumpeted on Thursday, May 4th at the special OC Marathon VIP Awards reception, as well as in emails and on social media. Awards include: "OCM's Fittest Firm Award" for the company with the most participants and "OCM's Most Philanthropic Firm Award" for the most funds raised by May 1, 2017.
